MDFA felicitates our budding footballers
-Mrs. Audrey Coutinho
The Mumbai District Football Association (MDFA) conducted the Yuva President League (YPL) that began on 15th August ‘2018 and ended on 26th January ‘2019. The matches were held only on Sundays and during vacations. Our budding footballers and their enthusiastic parents chose football over vacation to gain exposure and experience in a competitive field. With a total of 300 teams participating in this Mega Event made it the biggest tournament in Mumbai.
Our boys playing in the tournament brought the cup home as winners in the u12 category and runners-up in the u10 category. Much of the credit goes to our coaches Leslie Machado and Naresh Solanki who through their skill-based training transformed our boys into competitive and match-winning contenders. The “MAN OF THE MATCH” trophy winner after each game was almost every time a Bosco boy.
The MDFA AWARDS night with all its glitz and glamour was held on 4th May 2019 at the Cooperage football ground Churchgate. “THE FILMFARE OF FOOTBALL” as they rightly term it witnessed eminent personalities from different sporting backgrounds, Olympians, India captains, and Arjuna awardees. Based on their performance right through the tournament few boys were nominated for awards in various categories. 10 Bosco boys were in the nominee list out of which 3 boys made it to the final awards.
1. Priyansh Kunchikorve 5D
Best defender u 10 category
2. Yohaan Panjuani 5D
Best striker u12 category
3. Christiano Fernandes 6D
